Campground Activities

There's lots to do at this KOA. In addition to fun-bike rentals and mini-golf, you can splash in the pool, get out on nature hikes, or look for the schedule of "Crafts for Kids" posted at the A-frame. Ask us about telescope rentals for spying wildlife or night sky viewing.

Let us do the cooking!

The KOA cooks serve up hot meals twice a day from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day.  Breakfast starts with hotcakes, and other breakfast favorites.  In the evening, Indian Tacos, Buffalo Burgers, Barbecue and Pizza  are on the menu.  Finish with cinnamon fry bread a la mode for dessert!  Let us do the cooking after a long drive or a day exploring The Badlands.

Swimming Photo


It can get warm in the Badlands and there is no better way to cool off than a dip in our large built-in swimming pool.  We also have a wading pool for the tiny tikes, and lots of deck chairs and loungers to stay close to the action.  The pool is open Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day.

Bird watching

The White River and shade trees at the KOA are awesome bird habitat, where numerous songbirds nest.  In addition to the thousands of cliff swallows along the river, there are resident turkeys, owls and songbirds.  The White River basin is a migratory flyway for sandhill cranes, sandpipers and ducks.  Bald eagles and red-tailed hawks visit regularly.
